  • Stroll through them, listen and see how it runs all your around, is the best way to understand the Neapolitan chaotic universe. Feel to the Naples's San Gennaro and Maradona, while they roll you cars and motorcycles with ease, walking between shops of all kinds and clothes hanging. If you go to Naples and not go through here, and lose on the streets

  • If you've never been through the narrow streets of this wonderful neighborhood, you never really visited Naples and its Spanish historiography ... a wonderful neighborhood and absolutely not dangerous ...

  • It says it's a glimpse of the "real" Naples, in fact it is a very lively district with many historic attractions and many churches-Museum. Is rich in addition to homes and habits also features of trattorias. Despite the recent redevelopment of some areas for access to tourist spaces are always a cramped and wandering is not easy so much to improve
